Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu yesterday released a biography of late Anumolu Ramakrishna, a pioneer in the application of innovative systems and construction techniques in the Indian construction sector. The biography titled 'Building a Legacy' is authored by Chennai-based Chartered Accountant V Pattabhi Ram. Ramakrishna, former President and Managing Director at Larsen & Toubro, was posthumously awarded Padma Bhushan in 2014.
Complimenting the biography, Naidu yesterday said it was in many ways an acknowledgment and recognition of Ramakrishna's tremendous contribution towards finding the rightful place for the Indian construction industry in the world. He was instrumental in constructing several path-breaking buildings including Tirumala queue complex, Hitech city, and Nehru Indoor Stadium. Ramakrishna was born in December 1939 and died on August 20, 2013, at Hyderabad.
